TAKE A WORD - INSECTS


This week at Take a Word we have INSECTS as our word for inspiration.  Now under normal circumstances I'm not that keen on creepy crawlies, unless they are butterflies, and even then I don't really want them landing on me.  Nope!  But when I saw our inspirational word for this week it got me thinking about all those little busy insects going about their business mostly unseen by someone as tall as me ..... well I say tall, though it depends if being a straight 5 feet can be seen as tall at all ..... except to  those little insects I am talking about.  So I got down flat in the grass to take a closer look, and what do you know,  some of those little peeps are so colourful, even beautiful .... in an insect kind of way, and do you know what else .......... I swear I saw one or two sporting steampunkerie in their livery!  Mmmmmmm .... it's another world down there.

I thought that dragonfly was a scropion with his tail unfurled! Thanks, Ana, for straightening me out! This is delightfully quirky, Ann -- but then we don't expect any less from you. We always find something well done and totally off-the-wall here! Bravo

I'm down on my knees with you, Ann, and the view is splendid indeed!

Grannie Annie said...

It is indeed another world and so is your art Ann...so surreal and gorgeous. Bugs are wonderful colors and shapes but I am eternally glad that they are tiny because frankly...they creep me out!!!

such an interesting piece of art...totally awesome and so unique. Love it.

Faye said...

Super clever, Ann. A little surreal but beautiful in its own way.

Christine said...

Steampunk insects are much more sophisticated, but creepier because they are indestructible! Great job as always.

linda said...

great take on the Theme, Ann. Love the bug's eye view.

Dynamite art, Ann! You are always so creative, your art is a visual treat!

Bill said...

Your crawling creatures definitely look more fun than most!

Ozstuff said...

It must be your sizzling hot summer. Those insects look very languid and pleased with themselves. Whimsical, funny, beautiful, perfect.

Ewww, you used some really creepy crawly ones in this, Ann!
